Default Skype

I use Skype to call friends in Europa.
But for some reason they can not hear me anymore. I can hear them very clear, like next door.
I did all the checks on my PC and the Skype test calling.
Everything checks out OK.
I use a headset with build in mic.
It's a Logitech set.
Thanks for any Ideas

Wow, they have Internet on Jupiter's moons now?

Anyway, are you able to hear yourself when you use the test service? Go into Skype's audio settings and make sure the microphone is set to your Logitech headset. If you speak into it, you'll see the volume bars light up if its hearing you. I have a Logitech headset and it has a mic mute button on it. Make sure that's not muted.

Could also be a sign of issues with your internet connection, upstream can sometimes be problematic while downstream seems fine. Check your modem and verify everything is functioning. You can also check your speed at Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test then try resetting all networking equipment and check again see if there's any improvement. Write down your speeds, next time you are having problems with VOIP check again and see if your upstream speed is significantly lower than before.

I guess it finally got there.

"All these worlds are yours, except Europa. Attempt no landing there." - HAL-9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), in a message relayed from the monolith.

I am assuming the op speaks a European language, and in many of them it is indeed Europa, the original name for the continent, named after.... Europa.
